Help! My Personal Web Sites and Hosting Seems No Longer Accessible

tenebris-nox
Tuning in

Over the last 24 hours my personal web site is no longer accessible using broadband (I've got a Hub 3.0). All other sites seem ok - just the ones that are mine. I also can't FTP into the web host in the last 24 hours. If I use my mobile phone network (I am with Three) I can access things and FTP ok. The problem is clearly with Virgin and has suddenly happened.

My main site is pretty boring, just a regular Wordpress blog at https://garyhollingsbee.com and I have some other things using the same web host such as Wallabag, FreshRSS and a CalDAV server.

Things I've Tried (with no success)

  • used different devices (macbooks, ipads and phones)
  • read these forums for similar issues
  • changed DNS settings (tried OpenDNS and Google)
  • factory reset the Hub 3.0
  • used the cURL command in terminal (which times out)
  • flushed cache
  • checked with blocked.org.uk (no, doesn't seem blocked)

Help!

Our VM Hub 3 is in Router mode.  Child Safe is Disabled. Virus Safe is Enabled.
We can access website  https://garyhollingsbee.com  in both Firefox and Edge.

For comparison, here is the response from the VM DNS...

C:\Users\Philip>nslookup garyhollingsbee.com
Server: cache1.service.virginmedia.net
Address: 194.168.4.100

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: garyhollingsbee.com
Address: 77.75.122.198

 

Thank you for checking.

Yes, I'm in router mode and have Child Safe disabled and Virus Safe enabled. I still can't access (though works using a VPN... which is a bit annoying but useable.)

Not sure how to resolve this properly though.

What IP is being returned from your DNS ?

What is the full text of the error message ?

If you used Google DNS ( & no VPN ) does re-enable your access to the Website ?

This is the response from nslookup:

nslookup garyhollingsbee.com
Server: 194.168.4.100
Address: 194.168.4.100#53

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: garyhollingsbee.com
Address: 77.75.122.198

The Google DNS (8.8.8.8. and 8.8.4.4,) without VPN still doesn't give me access.
